Leonard and Beverly Ciaccio have been married for 57 years.

With Valentine’s Day upon us, The Queens Courier asked local couples what made them fall – and stay – in love.

Leonard and Beverly Ciaccio

Q: How long have you been together?

A: We’ve been married 57 years

Q: How did you meet?

A: We met at a dance

Q: Do you have any plans for Valentine’s Day?

LC: I’ll take her out to dinner.

Q: What are some activities you do together as a couple?

LC: We do practically everything together. Wherever she is, I am. We don’t go out together much. I shoot pool and she works out.

Q: What qualities or traits do you like about your partner?

LC: She’s soft-hearted, a loving mother, doting grandmother and a good friend.

BC: He’s a good kid

Q: Any memorable moment?

LC: I took her to the Motel on the Mountain for dinner and she surprised me with a sapphire ring. We ended up staying there even though it was winter and we hadn’t packed anything.

Q: Any advice for couples?

LC: Fifty seven years does not happen with one person, it takes two people. It’s important to think. Try to imagine yourself without that person. I don’t know what I would do.
